Abstract

Important geochemical evidence reflecting Quaternary climatic changes was obtained by evaluating geochemical data from 51 samples and datings from 3 samples by ESR method from sediments of a 7-m-deep trench in Great Konya lake area at the southwest of Adakale village (Konya, Turkey). The geochemical data indicate that the study area was influenced, four times, by a climate having strong precipitation, which caused strong erosion and high detrital input between 25,276 ± 1732-year BP and approximately 50,000-year BP. These periods correspond to climatic changes during the last glacial periods, the warm climate of D-O-2, D-O-5, D-O-6 and D-O-14 events and the cold climate of H2, H3, H4 or H5 and H6 events.
